FAQ

  • How will this benefit Mount Dennis?
    Toronto and the Mount Dennis community are in the midst of a housing crisis. As housing prices rise and families are displaced, it has also become more difficult to access supports and services. With the Mount Dennis Quilt, we propose approximately 175 rental units along with 3 floors of community and affordable retail space. This project will not only provide affordable, safe, welcoming homes to our neighbours, it will also create a gathering space for community services, events, and celebration. Learn more about our community partners by visiting the Support and Services page.
